questioning my internet speed...will it work with Ooma?

Post by nabril » Sat Apr 28, 2012 5:53 pm

Miami user with ATT with internet settings of download Speed up to: 1.5 Mbps and upload Speed up to: 256 Kbps (ATT DSL Ultra).

I cannot get faster speeds at this time, until Uverse arrives in the future.
So, there is a $50 rebate that expires on april 30th, and I've been wanting to get Ooma for some time. But, will my current speeds allow good call quality? Or will I get it, and regret the purchase because of dropped calls, bad sound, etc?

thanks

YOUR SPEED IS ENOUGH.I ONLY HAVE DSL LITE FROM ATT AND IT WORKS FINE.AND THATS HALF THE SPEED OF YOURS.

As long as you don't have heavy internet traffic along with the call (streaming, file sharing, etc.)

Check your connection as Thunderbird suggests to view the quality of your connection. The quality of your connection, rather than speed will make the difference. DSL is usually pretty good.

On a call my Telo uses well under 100 kbps in either direction.
